I am very sorry about that. Senator Fifield sought to distract me, but future comments will be made through the chair, Acting Deputy President.

Senator Cameron interjecting—

No, he did distract me, I am afraid to say, but I shall ensure that any future comments are made through the chair.

I oppose this legislation. I oppose it on very good public policy grounds. The repeal of the legislation is a mistake. Over time—and I am hopeful that the legislation will not be repealed, but if it is repealed—I think this government will come to understand in the future what a dreadful, dreadful mistake it has made.
